    Maine Wings for wishes fly in Aug 13-14-15

    After a year off last year, we have decided to do another fly in Weekend in August to support Maine Make a Wish
    The one we did two years ago raised over $12,000 donation thanks for all your generosity.


    The money went towards a therapeutic pool from a young boy with hip problems

    I really enjoy seeing all of you and having you here in my house in Exeter Maine

    The town of Dexter has asked me to host it at the airport because they had lots of requests to participate, and it takes A bush style plane to land that where do.
    h

    We have a couple new twist this year I’ll put an agenda out shortly with some ideas I
    still want to do a silent auction again this year that was a huge fundraiser. Did you get somebody to donate airplane parts or time please be as generous as you were in the past


    Stay tune for more info but please let me know if you’re coming for a headcount
    Lobsters are right now four times the normal price they’re out of sight so I hope and pray that the price was and if you want to eat lobsters
    Hope to have a big crowd in August see you then

    You know I’m in Jim as I added it to the calendar the other day. Just a matter of finding my way there. With luck by then I’ll have found a ride or a Bush Uber.

    you know that Glenn and Tim are going to chew on you like a bulldog on a bone for a minimum of 8 years. We can do weddings talk them into coming up. Shouldn’t take more than 10 mins right?

    Getting close to 2 months away now. Our event in 2019 raised almost 12000, which was directed to a local young mans wish for a therapy pool. Im hoping he can attend our ceremony Sat afternoon
    Its shaping up like this
    Early birds coming in on thursday I hope to take everyone to my friends house in town who built an authentic wood fired pizza oven. The thing is a work of art, and the pizza is wonderful

    On Friday, everyone loves to go to the coast, so we will be making a lobster roll run somewhere. Trying to find an extra special spot
    Friday night is an ice cream social up to the lake at Dexter. Bush planes only in the field, its kinda short, not bad but not suitable for some. Amphibs can come up the ramp We can take donatins that evening

    Saturday is Wings and Wheels for wishes at the Dexter Airport. Its a airplane fly in, and a hot rod cruise in. all benefits go to Maine Make a wish. We will close out the afternoon with a short ceremony in my Hangar. at dusk will be dinner in the Hangar back home in Exeter. Cant promise lobster on the menu this year, its going for north of $14 bucks a pound. Might be a chicken night. In our tradition, we generally pick out someone to roast, JP Russel master of ceremony

    Sunday most folks head home, if you stick around there will be some flying

    We had fabulous donations the last time, from Cubcrafters and Mark Keneston, a T3 tailwheel from the talented Dan Dufault, a nice set of gearlegs from Chuck Kinberger. All went into the silent auction, and raised some big funds. I know its been a crazy 18 months for most folks, but please consider donating something we can put in the silent auction

    Thanks for listening, see you soon at Fairground Field

    Maine Wings for wishes fly in Aug 13-14-15

    Soooooo, where do you go after Oshkosh?

    Well to Maine naturally!

    The only thing better than flying around Maine eating wild blueberries is flying around Maine eating wild blueberries with Jim Crane, and all of you.

    For those of you that use Facebook, a helpful friend created a Wings for Wishes Maine event page for Jim and has just opened up the auction.

    You have to look under the Discussions button to see all the items, but they are listed separately so anyone can bid on them.

    I will try to post some info here as well if anyone is interested - or at least the current list of items for auction to benefit the kids.

    https://www.facebook.com/events/9486...tab=discussion

    Hope to see you there!

    You can add a bid here and I’ll cross post it, or contact Jim Crane directly.

    We have not found an easy one spot automatic bid process, although perhaps by next year.

    Bidding is open all day at the event, so while it may be difficult to correlate, the high bid at the end of Saturday from any valid source wins. If they determine that we have two matching bids from different sources (a tie) then first high bidder wins.

    Its time to take a refresher on who is coming to stay Ive got a pretty good idea, but would like to start to nail it down. Every one is welcome to come, we have lots of room to camp, a bathroom with shower in the hangar, a couple of tupperware toilets, and another shower outside that will be a unique experience stay tuned. I have a limited number of inside beds, so trying to sort thru that.
    If you come early on thurs, my friend is cookiing us pizza in his outdoor granite pizza oven. ITs quite the experience


    Friday is headed to the coast for a lobster roll, which have just about doublled from last year, At least the lobstermen are making a good wage
    Friday laafternoon we are going up to Dexter, land in the grass and taxi to the beach for ice cream, and accept a few donations, if you come with an Amphib, the ramp is improved from last year

    Saturday is the main day, Wings for Wishes officially kicks off at 10 am at the Dexter Airport I know its shaping up to be one of the largest flyins in Maine this summer.
    Ends at 3, back home to the hangar, with dinner that evening.

    Please let me know if you are coming to stay

    thanks
    jim
